rxLinMod: Multiple regressions for a "by" group

Does rxLinMod() have the capability to run several regressions for a "by" group?

rxLinMod() does not have this capability directly. One approach to do this would be to use the rxSplit() function to create separate XDF files, one for each unique group value and then call rxLinMod() in a loop to compute different regressions for each split XDF file.

For example, using the big Airline data, downloadable from here http://packages.revolutionanalytics.com/datasets/

Create 7 different XDF files, one for each day of the week. Then compute a linear regression model for each day in the week.
